    ... with all the contradictions that characterize it, but that makes it fascinating. Get lost wandering aimlessly through the streets of this neighbourhood-with due respect for the choices of life of its inhabitants-means savor the smells, the backing vocals and sounds sincere and authentic.

    Nice neighborhood all sloping streets tangled with each other. Lots of charm. People are often in the street on their front steps. Many small shops. Attention when night falls for girls anyway!

    Very impressive, beautiful main street. You have to be careful especially in the side streets

Where to stay in Naples

Naples' lodging options include everything from turn-of-the-century historical mansions to hip boutique hotels. For a five-star experience in the heart of town, book a centrally located luxury hotel. Less expensive but just as comfortable, traditional inns just outside the central area offer peaceful comfort, private parking, and private outdoor space ideal for quiet dinners and small parties. If you are looking for a less urban experience and prefer to stay in a leafy neighborhood, consider the city's residential suburbs.
